    As far as I know - the best tool to print photobooks is Indigo, say a competitor will show up and they will blow you away in a second but Xerox, generally, gives very nice prints.

    Contact the local rep. Send them test files and have them print it on the printer so you can see the actual quality.

    You should not buy a laser printer for photography print at all - Inkjet like Epson 4880 with rip preferably...

    Hey davidayi, Ive read your past posts and see that we are interested in the same machine. Have you purchased the 7800, or found a competitor for it?

    The problem with printing a photo book on an epson inkjet is that a 100 page book will cost you $300 to print! The quality will be tops though for a one-off.

    Hey Xfactor, I did not typed it down but was thinking - adding a bulk ink feeding system should reduce the cost significantly on Epson, don't you think? I mean if person is considering a laser printer and not a large one, they don't need 100 books a day or more to print...
    As far as my original reply - we get quiet a lot of "walk ins" in my printshop asking to print or copy a photographs, those that insist that we do it anyway, usually not exited with the results... The deal is #1 - You can mill the toner only by so much and molecule of ink will always be smaller than particle of toner, #2 - today's inkjet (not a $100 ones) use 6-8 colors and can reproduce photos much better than CMYK toner based machines. Yes I'd out that commercial websites offering to print photobooks using InkJet printers - Indigo is next best thing I guess.

    I'd have a very hard time making money trying to do photo books on an epson plus bulk ink system. To start, print speed is so slow it means it will take many hours to do one full book. I've tried two bulk ink systems and both worked ok at first and then developed some issues with marking due to excessive ink flow on one, the other got air bubbles in yellow when it sat and must have developed a seal problem somewhere I couldn't find. Then after that you have the head life of the inkjet. All in all it could work but I'd say it would be very difficult for me to make enough to survive based on what my customers would pay for a photo book and all the labor and all the time involved. I'd only consider it for a good customer as a break even service.
